The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) updated delegates at the Global Landscapes Forum in Bonn, Germany on the Bonn Challenge Barometer of Progress. The tool details the activities of Brazil, Mexico, El Salvador, Rwanda, South Korea and the United States as they restore degraded and deforested landscapes. It is the only global progress tracking protocol focused on forest landscape restoration.
